BoingBoing reader Fosta placed a still camera in various spots around Tokyo last week, then shot lots of timelapse photography, and later stitched it into a short video.
"Tokyo is a particularly unique city," says Fosta, "Pedestrians are treated like traffic, with pedestrian 'roads' on floating skyways, and one way systems. It's truly odd."
Link. The video's great, but what I want to know — who's that soundtrack? Update: wasabi_pz says,
The song is "Beef or Chicken", done by the Teriyaki Boyz, a Japanese rap/hip-hop group (obviously). The band is composed of members of Rip Slyme and m-flo. Here's the wikipedia article on them. They have a song on the soundtrack for "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift."
Chad Arsenault says,
Ron Fricke has a similar segment in his art-house documentary, "Baraka."
Definitely worth checking out.
Also, the first part of that clip was of the six-way intersection in Shibuya.
My girlfriend and I made a video of the same interesection from street level.
(We're standing beneath the ginormous video screen). It's here.
